Harmonia: Sacred Geometry, The Pattern of Existence | Opens 12 April - 15 June 2018

Harmonia: Sacred Geometry, The Pattern of Existence is an exhibition of interdisciplinary work by artist, academic and curator, Gordon Froud. The show coalesces a set of ideas that investigates various aspects of sacred geometry in the world around us.

This exhibition is made up of an extensive body of work, of over 100 pieces that ranges from small-scale crystal glass works to a monumental 6.5m high polyhedron made from 18 giant road cones.

This exhibition, however, extends beyond these iconic sculptural works and includes drawing, printmaking, digital imaging, embossing and even animation. Froud finds sacred geometry in the landscape, the cityscape, in the human form and spirit, reinforcing the extent to which geometry is inherent in both our corporeal existence and the patterns of the universe. Froud’s exploration of the spiritual is not partisan (as he does not ascribe to a particular belief system) but explores sacred geometry across many belief systems from ancient Egypt, the Maya, Judeo-Christianity and Islam, to contemporary belief in aliens; the inter-dimensionality of beings; the authenticity of crop circles and so forth. 

The exhibition is a result of longstanding research that Froud brings into focus for this monumental mid-career show at the Standard Bank Gallery.

The exhibition is supported by a comprehensive catalogue to give context and grounding analysis to Froud's 35-year career, including interviews, academic articles and an in-depth chapter by Froud on the work for this exhibition. 

  • This exhibition features at the Standard Bank Gallery in downtown Joburg from 12 April to 15 June 2018. 
  • WALKABOUT:  Please join curator, Gordon Froud, for a walkabout of the exhibition on Saturday, 12 May 2018 at 10am.
